Tunisian Crochet for Beginners

Tunisian yarn


Tunisian (or Afghan) crochet is considered a mixture of knitting and crochet, although you don't need any experience of either to learn this craft. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners who have never knitted or crocheted before, or for anyone who currently knits or crochets, and would like to diversify their skill set.

This workshop teaches you how to Tunisian crochet in rows.
